Hazy amber with a big and lasting, fluffy white head. Intense and unique aroma of funk, spice - lots of pepper - wood character, and some exotic fruit, especially pineapple. Dry and spicy flavour with wood character and lots of tannin and pepper for refreshing result. ogglethorp (919) - Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a very hazy copper color with a humongous white head. The head looks like egg whites beat to stiff peaks. Aroma is floral, yeasty, some barnyard notes, lemon zest, oak. Flavor is peppery hops, floral notes, lemon zest, some citrus, more oak. Palate is medium light, highly carbonated, finished tart, dry, and bitter. Another great one from Ron. joefoodie (15) - USA - MAY 9, 2010
A delicious beer. Slightly sweet up front with a slight tang from the rye. The finish is crisp & dry. As it warms, the sweetness mellows and there is a touch of oakiness as well as some sourness. illidurit (2356) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Bottle courtesy of iceicebaby. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a huge fluffy khaki head. Aroma is a first lemony, then appley, then spices like nutmeg and clove come into play, giving it a fleeting apple pie character. Flavor is nice and funky, really bretty and with some phenolics as well. Probably the closest thing to Orval other than Orval that I’ve tasted. There are lots of parallels: orange color, fruity aroma, bretty flavor, bone dry finish, high-but-soft carbonation. The mouthfeel is spot-on Orval. Really not much in the tripel department. Definitely not an ester-forward beer. But that’s fine with me. Orval is incredible, and this sorta-clone is great too. Travlr (26436) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Ed, thanks! Slightly hazy golden color, bright white head. Aroma of beautiful white wine, dust, pepper. Taste is really nice, softly sour fruit and dusty barnyards and attic corners. Delicious.
